This weekend the challenge is ‘ for 33 of your own words about a famous trio. The trio could be from literature, from history or from pop culture’.
I’ve gone for a life-long favourite – The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, with apologies to C.S.Lewis.
Lucy hesitated, then opened wardrobe door. The air turned to ice as the Witch burst out, white furs streaming behind her, unable to escape her destiny as the great Lion landed beside her.
This weekends challenge is – Remember the apostrophe? About.com defines apostrophe as, “A figure of speech in which some absent or nonexistent person or thing is addressed as if present and capable of understanding.”
The White Rabbit’s Prayer to the Traffic Goddess
Oh gracious goddess, please, change the light to green! No! don’t let them cross now. Thank you. Now, can you just keep the level crossing open? I’m late, for a very important date.
Here is my contribution to this week end’s challenge ” we’re asking for 30 of your own words plus the three following words for a total of 33 words. Tether Loft Crown”.
Jack surveys his parents’ dusty loft. Puzzled, he pulls at a grimy Crown Mail sack, almost hidden behind the hobby horse tethered to an old pram. Bundles of blood stained notes fall out.
This weekend’s Trifextra challenge is to write a Haiku. This week I’ve been getting my classroom ready for the start of the new year next week. My haiku is about returning to school and the beginning of Autumn, which for me are synonymous.
Cool winds rustle trees.
Leaves to turn, lessons to learn.
Wild dreams to inspire.
My response to the Trifexta challenge Tooth. A much discussed, deadly serious topic in my classroom.
Every day I am excitedly told about the tooth fairies’ latest activities. I have discovered a whole host of them: the obscenely generous, hard up, forgetful, letter-writing – all thoughts of Florence Nightingale or 1066 dispelled.
My contribution to this week’s challenge ” We want you to follow suit and give us a thirty-three word piece that has a color in it.”
Wrapped in his forest green cloak, Will Scarlett dissolved against the ancient oak. His charcoal eyes darted, probing the undergrowth. A careless glint of well-honed silver signalled the Sheriff’s position. Will took aim.
This is my entry for Trifextra Week 77. The challenge is ” this weekend we are giving you three words and asking for you to give us back another thirty of your own, making a grand total of thirty-three words. Your words to work with are: ring water stage .”
Stretching over the dilapidated landing stage, James reached for the distressed Ring-necked Parakeet in the black water. Silently the egg thief waited.
His skull cracked and icy, blackness invaded his head.
I’m not sure where this came from – it is unusually dark for me.
The current Trifextra challenge is ” we’re asking for you to sum up your own (writing) process with just three little words“.
My response is Last minute flurry – the picture shows what my brain feels like during a flurry.
I’ve just discovered Trifecta and thought I’d give it a go. This weekend’s challenge is a thirty-three word free-write. Any topic, any style –
An afternoon spent in the hot sun, diplomatically deciding which child has won the egg and spoon race, fending off parents who think they know better, soothing the tears of the unsuccessful athletes.
